UCI's licensing officers help campus researchers protect their inventions

They call it “the baby monitor,” but it’s nothing like the ones sold at Babies “R” Us that alert parents when junior’s crying in his crib.

Developed by UC Irvine pediatrics professor Dr. Dan Cooper, the sophisticated wireless device can detect subtle movements in infants that signal increased risk of cerebral palsy, autism and other neurological disorders. It’s outfitted with a sensor created by Pai Chou, UCI associate professor of electrical engineering & computer science, and it has a special application to warn of sudden infant death syndrome.

New Engineering Dean Gears Up for Fiscal Challenge

Skilled in adaptative research, Gregory Washington has a mission: partner or perish

Gregory Washington, UC Irvine’s new dean of The Henry Samueli School of Engineering, knows the mechanics of staying cool under pressure.

An accomplished systems engineer, Washington researches “smart” materials that respond to temperature changes, stretching and other stimuli, and which can be used for everything from heating car seats to harvesting energy from computers to recharge batteries.

“If you pull on them, press them or otherwise strain them, they actually will produce electricity,” he explains. “So any entity that’s vibrating or moving, I can extract energy from it and then use that for a very useful purpose.”

An App a Day

Open wide and say “Aah.” Not your mouth – your smart phone or laptop.

Mobile health applications are multiplying like cells in a petri dish. Consumers will soon have 600 million to choose from, analysts say. By 2015, more than a third of the nation’s 1.4 billion smart phone users will run some type of medical app.

At the UC Irvine division of the California Institute for Telecommunications & Information Technology, researchers, computer scientists, engineers, biologists, chemists and game developers in the new eHealth Collaboratory meld their expertise to produce these applications for healthcare consumers as well as providers.

Taking the ‘Waste’ Out of Nuclear Waste

Chemical engineer advocates recycling uranium, plutonium and other radioactive byproducts

While spent nuclear fuel continues to pile up by the ton across the United States, UC Irvine’s Mikael Nilsson says the solution is clear: recycle it at the commercial nuclear power plants that create it.

More than 96 percent of the waste – namely uranium and plutonium – can be used again, says the assistant professor of chemical engineering & materials science, and plants in Europe and Asia are doing just that. Nilsson’s laboratory research is focused on how to recycle or destroy the remaining 3 to 4 percent.

Doctoral candidate snags fellowship for work assessing infrastructure vulnerability to natural disasters

On the night of June 20, 1990, 8-year-old Behrouz Shafei was up late watching soccer on TV when his world suddenly convulsed. A 7.4 magnitude earthquake centered some 150 miles from his home in Tehran claimed more than 40,000 lives.

“It was my first inspiration to study natural hazards,” Shafei says. “Like California, Iran is a high-seismic area. I wanted to contribute to society in a meaningful way that crosses borders and nationalities. Natural disasters do not recognize manmade boundaries.”
